I’m a resident of the Sunset District. I just read the article in the Sunset Beacon. I think creating homeless shelters in the parks, Golden Gate in particular, will be a big mistake. As it is, homeless gravitate during the day to GG Park. This situation can seriously become a problem to public health.
During these hard times, the parks are oases for people. Areas of recreation, relaxation and exercise.
Bringing homeless to the park will threaten the purpose and enjoyment of the park, and every tax-paying San Franciscan deserves a clean and safe park.
Once a shelter is used inside the park, it will be hard to contain the situation. It could even turn dangerous.
There must be other options. Why not consider Hetch Hetchy area which is SF city land?
